School Governance (Contracts) (England) (Revocation) Regulations 2011 come into force

Implementation date: 20 July 2011

The Regulations revoke the School Governance (Contracts) (England) Regulations 2005 (SI 2005/1508), which require the governing bodies of maintained schools to have regard to the "Code of practice on workforce matters in public sector service contracts" when entering into a contract that involves a transfer of staff. This follows the withdrawal of the code. The Regulations can be viewed on the UK legislation website.
